Creating compelling images using nothing but the human body and lighting is challenging. Any sexuality or awkwardness is obscured by the constant struggle to find interesting lines, shapes, and textures.
In both of these shoots I used two cameras. The first was a point and shoot digital camera which I used mainly to evaluate lighting and composition. The second was an 8″x10″ film view camera. Being 8×10 this film has 80 sq. inches, a full 60 times more than 35mm. The resulting image is around 100-200 megapixels. This quality is why digital cameras won’t displace film in applications requiring top-quality for quite some time. In fact, a group of photo nerds has modified an air force aerial camera to produce 1000+ megapixel images.
